Free Digital Skills Training: WordPress For BusinessHave you looked at the business and technology section of the news lately?

The business sector is experiencing a global digital skills shortage!

(The business sector is experiencing a global digital skills shortage!)

Technology-dependent countries like the US, UK, Australia, and many European countries face a significant competitive disadvantage as a result of this digital skills shortage. According to various studies like the Australian Digital Skills and Salary Survey, commissioned by the Slade Group Digital Practice and NET:101 and undertaken by Sweeney Research, many businesses are finding it difficult to source digital employees and are finding that the digital skills gap is taking a moderate or heavy toll on their business, yet they lack the strategy to address this problem.

According to Elizabeth Ebeli, Slade group’s digital practice manager …

What About My Business?

According to the Digital Marketing Institute, content marketing is one of the most in-demand digital marketing skills companies and businesses are looking for.

With every new Google update announced and every new social media algorithm implemented the importance of content marketing becomes increasingly clearer. The demand for qualified content marketers has surged in the past year as digital marketing managers realize the value of providing valuable content to their customers. Quality content creation feeds into many essential elements of the digital marketing mix, including email marketing, social media, and SEO strategy.

Content is the currency of the Information Age. In today’s ultra-competitive Digital Economy, every employee should be able to create digital content to help sell or promote the business that employs them, no matter how small the business is.

One of the easiest ways to do this is through blogging.

When it comes to blogging, no other platform is as powerful or as effective at helping you get content published and promoted online as WordPress.

WordPress is the world's leading content publishing and content management platform!

Digital Skills Training For Non-Coders

The digital skills shortage isn’t just restricted to programming or coding technology and web applications. There is also a growing demand for digital marketing skills. Skills like being able to start and grow a business website or blog, expertly manage your CMS, write great content that will engage your audience and provide value to your readers, produce and integrate a variety of media formats into your content, build an active presence on social media, improve your search results with SEO, identify and expand your online reach into related niche markets, and more!

Turn Everyone In Your Business Into An Expert Content Marketer …

For many small businesses, their digital presence consists of a brochure-like website where no regular content is added to it.

Imagine how much growth your business would experience and how further ahead of your competition you would be if your sales and marketing people contributed content to your website regularly that educated visitors about the benefits of using your products and services and helped turn these into new leads, prospects, and sales, and if your operations and support staff provided regular training content, tips, and information aimed at turning new customers into repeat customers for life.

Think of all of the knowledge, skills, and expertise your people bring to your business. In some cases, there can be years of specialized knowledge about your industry and an in-depth understanding of the processes that go into producing your goods and services. This is all potential content locked inside people’s heads waiting to be harnessed. How can you harness this valuable resource and turn it into great content to help grow your digital presence?
